2017 Alpinestars Tech 5 MX Boots - Black | A201501510D Outer: Water-repellent microfibre
Protection: MX spec protection
Closure: MX aluminium buckle closures
For beginners: The Tech 5 comes in the wake of the hugely successful and iconic Tech 10 and Tech 7. Positioned slightly below the Tech 7, the Tech 5 is not as racing orientated, making it ideal for beginners or weekend off-road enthusiasts. It plays an important role in Alpinestars' line-up of class-leading motocross boots as it combines innovative research at a level accessible to amateur riders.
What makes the Tech 5 different? Constructed from water resistant microfibre, the Tech 5 is extremely durable and lightweight. This material ensures consistent fit for long term usage and is easy to maintain and clean. The buckle system is made with fibreglass arms and high-impact aluminium bridge closures. It features a memory, quick release system with a self-aligning design giving you a precise and secure closure. The buckles, sole and footbed are replaceable making these boots an investment that'll see you riding the rugged track time and time again.
Innovative features: A biomechanical pivot system links the lower and upper parts of the boot giving front and rear flexibility as well as structural support. The contoured shin plate offers superior impact and abrasion resistance and features a Velcro panel for a personalised, secure closure. Contact and feel with the bike is improved thanks to the grip sculpture patterning on the inside leg panels.
